The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - WHAT'S THE BUZZ -

RICKY Ponting is known as “Punter” be­cause he hap­pens to be a very good one.

The ex-Aus­tralian cricket cap­tain no­ticed Vow and De­clare was pay­ing $151 with cor­po­rate book­mak­ers in the early bet­ting mar­kets at the be­gin­ning of the year and snapped it up. He was cel­e­brat­ing like he’d won an Ashes series af­ter the race.

Two Mel­bourne-based turf journos also had a huge win on the horse, grab­bing odds of $201 when bet­ting opened on the race.
